Episode Summary

Part 1

The episode opens with a foreshadowed event of White Pantera and Puma Loco dangling from a platform inside the volcano. A shadowy figure walks to where White Pantera and Puma Loco are dangling. The shadowy figure is revealed to be a very angry El Tigre. It then goes back 2 days earlier, where everything in Miracle City seems normal until Sartana of the Dead comes riding in. Manny and Rodolfo (as El Tigre and White Pantera respectively) try to stop her, but crash into each other instead. Rodolfo scolds Manny for wanting in on the battle, claiming he is too young. Regardless, they enter the Supervillain stadium, stumbling across various villains.

Running Gags

  • Rodolfo and Granpapi treating Manny like a child.
  • Sartana mentioning villains then White Pantera followed by him yelling "Black Pantera" as his cover name.


  • This is the second, also the last, full length episode of the series.
  • Sartana is revealed to have a grandson, Django of the Dead, and an unnamed daughter.
    • This makes another 3-person family composing of a son/daughter, a parent and a grandparent.
  • This episode was the only episode to have 2 endings that were voted upon by viewers in which the good one was voted. The evil one would be featured as an extra in other areas.
  • Granpapi and Rodolfo are both a bit more protective of Manny that usual in this episode.


  • When General Chapuza started talking to El Tigre and White Pantera while Django was defeated, you could see his hand that was cut off appear as normal and after it was gone again.
  • When El Mal Verde falls into El Oso after fighting Manny in the first round, if you look closely Black Cuervo can be seen in the crowd but she never competes or is seen throughout the rest of the episode. Later in the episode, Black Cuervo is seen hanging in the volcano on the background.
